due to mature subject matter, viewer discretion is advised. >> i have been down since 1993 for shooting my mom.
12:01 pm
an inmate past forges a brotherhood not often seen. >> i have to be at work for 6:00 so that i am up at 5:00 every morning. >> and a sinister brotherhood attempts to spread its influence. >> brothers don't get on camera, but i got tired of seeing the rats and the dropouts speaking for the aryan brotherhood. >> an inmate gets in over his head. >> i was in my cell, sitting in my cell, and bum rushed by two guys who came in and beat me up and look. >> snitches get killed. snitches get killed. >> everything that i have, and everything that i ever will have is in this cell. >> and using personal cameras provided by our cameras, inmates speak their minds. >> it is hard environment to grow up in. this place will make you old quick.
12:02 pm
i'm a member of the aryan brotherhood, one of the most despised, one of the most feared prison organizations to exist in this country. everybody hates us. but i'm here to tell you that we are a group of white men who are proud to be white. we make no apologies for being white. and we have a code of honor that
12:03 pm
we live by. >> the aryan brotherhood is the largest gang at indiana state prison. to no longer be a member in good standing is to be in a very unfortunate position. >> you can see the blood clot in my eye. it took at least a day for this to stop bleeding. i got jumped. >> by whom? >> the gang. it is really all has to do with the gang. >> i used to be in a gang. i used to be affiliated. i'm a cover-up from the aryan brotherhood. this was the aryan brotherhood. i covered it up. i came in prison august 17th, 2006, and i covered it up after seven days of being in prison. they said i had a problem with the aryan brotherhood and the person i told on supposedly was
12:04 pm
here at this prison. >> in the prison we have had a big problem with the aryan brotherhood, an instead of the arians going after the blacks, it is the arians going after each oother, and a lot of it with the influx of the organization and leadership and there is a struggle for control. >> since dropping out of the aryan brotherhood, nick compton says that being attacked is only but one problem. >> they will extort for money. my mom and sister have sent over $5,000 since i've been here. >> can you identify your attackers? >> yes. >> will you identify your attackers? >> yes, no problem. >> he risks putting himself in greater danger with the aryan brotherhood by talking to internal affairs about his problems. >> he says he is being extorted and if there is truth in the statement, then we will protect him. he goes home in february, and the thing is to make sure that
12:05 pm
everyone goes home, at least in one piece anyhow. if he is lying to us, then i mean granted we could probably still protect him, but he might get other charges on top of whatever for providing false information. >> now, ralph is waiting on crucial evidence from his mom, crucial receipts that could prove that he and his family are being extorted from the inmates. >> how much did they extort you for? >> i know my mom has sent over $200 and plus since i have been here, it is close to $400. >> and that all comes from you being an ab member? >> exactly. that was years ago. >> okay. >> so, i mean, all of my problem in prison now has to stem with me, and the bad choices i made
12:06 pm
when i was younger. >> and they are coming back to haunt you? >> yeah. it is like leeches, you know, trying to suck the life out of anything that i have, and trying to get me for anything i could, and if you want to be around us, this is what is going to happen and if you want to go to school or leave you alone, it is going to cost you. so how much are you willing to pay to leave you alone. >> and then you stopped paying and my sister was supposed to send the guy $65 and this happened. >> that is because you owe money? it is because i'm paying for my -- >> extortion. >> yep. >> here is what we are going the do. we are waiting for the information from your mom, and in the time being right now, you will go back to "b" and be on key lock and we are not going to let you out. >> man, this is -- i don't know. >> cometon has a decision to make. if he stays in general
12:07 pm
population, he is eligible to take classes that will move his release up by 90 days, but he is more vulnerable to attack. if he requests protective custody from the prison, he has to serve the 90 days. >> whatever i have to do to make sure i walk out of the door to give my mom a hug, that is what i am going to do it. >> i mean, 90 days versus daisies? >> right. i realize that. >> as a suspected snitch and aryan brotherhood dropout, compton is the kind of inmate that people like steven weaver despice. he made his feelings clear on the camera that was provided by our producers. >> if i was a young kid and i told on my brother, i got beat for telling. we got taught at a young age in school, don't be a tattletale. nowadays they have cop shows on
12:08 pm
tv that teach these kids it is all right to tell. dial 1-800-snitch if mom and dad are smoking dope on the weekend. >> and the prison has identified him as a high ranking member of the aryan brotherhood. >> i can't really get into specifics, but i'll tell you that we are strong white men. we are proud of that. >> we don't hate anybody else, but if you hate us, we hate you ten times worse. if you hurt wone of us, we will hurt you ten times worse. >> active members rarely speak about their affiliation on camera, but this time weaver made an exception. >> well, i lost a little bit of sleep over it. >> why? >> doing this interview. brothers don't normally get on
12:09 pm
camera, but i talked to a lot of my guys here, brothers i respect, and they gave me the green light, and to be frank i got tired of seeing rats and dropouts speaking for the aryan brotherhood. they don't speak for us. they are not real brothers or they would not have dropped out. they are marked men. they are dead men walking as well they should be. >> weaver's role in the aryan brotherhood is one of the reasons he has been housed in administrative segregation, a lockdown unit located on the east side of "d" cell house. >> what is this i see back here about a hit he had put out on -- >> that is part of the reason why we sent him over there. >> just his activity and his influence over the population being a leader within the stg group is enough reason to keep him over there. just at that, because he can call shots and make things happen, and stand back in the
12:10 pm
shadows. >> the thing i don't understand is that they put me in ad-seg thinking i ordered a hit on somebody, but how does that safe that person. if i'm in ad-seg, he is still going to get hit. if i had the authority to do that, which i don't, but my past haunts me, and it is bloody. coming up -- >> as far as the extortion, i think that he is lying. >> nick compton's story comes under fire, and later -- >> yes. >> we check in on one of the most memorable inmates to ever appear on "lockup."
12:11 pm
12:12 pm
12:13 pm
it is not what it used to be. guys on the shows telling on each other. it is crazy, man.
12:14 pm
that is the worst thing you can do up in the joint is to tell on somebody. >> one thing, if you are a 1234i67, or you cause somebody to be in trouble, that is disrespectful. we hate child molesters and snitches. point simple. if you don't like it, i don't know what to tell you. am not sure what is going on. i'm just waiting here to see what is going to happen. >> nick compton forms that the former gang the aryan brotherhood has assaulted him because of extortion money from his mother.
12:15 pm
>> as far as the extortion, i think that he is lying. >> why? >> because we have not received any information about who the money was going to, phone numbers, addresses, none of that, receipts. that is the things that we need that they said that they had to confirm that he was being extorted. this is compton, from the indiana state prison, and i am calling about your son, and i need the receipts and the phone numbers or the people's names, and if you could call me back at the prison, i would greatly appreciate it very much. thank you. >> despite the influence of the aryan brotherhood, violence at indiana state is rarely race-related. >> this isn't like, you know, i watched the "lockup" on california where this part is the ariayairyans and this part e blacks and we don't have the problems. even with some incidents where the whites have had problems
12:16 pm
with the blacks or the blacks have had problems with the whites, with we can usually get it worked out or talked out so it does not escalate to take a whole house to make it all whites or all blacks. we just don't have that problem. >> there is another form of integration at indiana state that goes beyond race. in the residential treatment unit, selected inmates with a history of good behavior live with and serve as mentors to inmates with mental health issue issu issues. >> you like working? >> yes. >> and mens or the like harold dongan form a different sort of brotherhood with inmates like frank street. >> they are human like everybody else. some of them just like for you to listen, you know. >> you live out in the country, right? and right next to us was my grandma and grandpa. >> a lot of times i feel their pain. these guys have had just terrible history. it get frustrating about as far as other people look at them,
12:17 pm
and it is to let them know you can do anything that you want to do, you know. >> what's that? >> my mom and my girlfriend. >> and they say, hey, mr. street. >> street has had an especially challenging time. he is serving 45 years for killing his mother during a schizophrenic episode. street first told "lockup" producers of his story when we met him at indiana's wabash correctional facility. we warn you, what you are about to hear is extremely graphic. >> i had become delusional, and they say insane, but it just said you had to eat part of her brains in order for her to become a part of you. i was not a sane person who did that back then. we don't eat brains from somebody's body if you are sane.
12:18 pm
>> do you miss your mother? >> yes, but i can't bring her back. >> the cost of what he done is really don't worry me at all, but i hope he will be okay with living with it. he has to live with something like that. >> donnegan sees potential for street. he even arranged for street to get a job working with him as an sis tant electrician. >> i started three weeks as an electrical trainee. i hold the ladder steady and clean up the messes. >> what is the red wire? >> i don't know what the white wire is. >> the white wire is common. >> and the red wire is hot. >> the red wire is hot. >> and black is hot. >> black is hot. and what is the green wire? >> it is hot, too. >> green wire is what? your ground wire. >> your ground wire. so, a lot of things, in this prison, you have maybe the green
12:19 pm
wire is your hot wire. it is kind of old, so, you know. >> and make sure that the power is cut off. >> yeah, make sure that the power is cut off before you start working on it. >> that is the truth. >> all right. street, i will catch up with you tomorrow morning and see you for work. >> all right. >> he says he will wake me up good and early, and he will. an hour earlier. i think that mr. street will be okay. i think that he will be okay. he is just like any other person, and as long as you stay out of his way, he will stay out of your way. he has a great sense of humor, and it is a blessing to know him, you know. >> mr. street is doing fantastically well. when i first met him, he was just out of control. very aggressive, throwing substances, cursing. very hard to manage. i mean, he is really quite a different person now. >> the prison's mental health
12:20 pm
staff is so pleased with street, they are considering moving him into general population. >> mr. street has been working for the electrical shop for about four weeks now. he goes everyday and goes back to seclusion everyday and i think it is time to moving him out of the "e" dorm. >> he has been stable out there and doing a good job for them? >> yes. he has been compliant. working hard. >> he went out to sit out there for a couple of hours, and he had no problem. >> 10-4. >> any sense of how the other guys are responding to him being out and about. >> i think that some of them are scared of him, because of the crime, and they saw him on the wabash show, but they haven't caused any problems. >> i am a little concerned about the side effects of the involuntary movements and whether any of the other offenders will perceive that. >> you know, the jerseking, and
12:21 pm
the maintenance team are aware of it and they don't seem to have any issues with it, and the maintenance foreman thinks he can succeed out there. >> very good. anything else on mr. street? we can count him or one of the success stories, for now. coming up -- >> make sure you mail those receipts out. you said you were going to do that last week, right? >> even as he tries to prove his case, nick compton can't escape the wrath of other inmates. >> snitches get killed.
12:22 pm
12:23 pm
12:24 pm
thought running through my mind is to get out of prison, to get home, to be around civil normal people. to be around my family. stop dealing with idiots. they can't break me.
12:25 pm
i got too much faith. too much good things going my way. >> nick compton believes he's a target of his former gang, the aryan brotherhood, and would prefer to be in protective custody, but the prison must first confirm that the aryans are extorting his mother before they can protect him from another attack. >> right now we're going to try to contact nicholas compton's mother again and see if she's able to come up with the stuff that she says she has. this is probably my guess -- i know it's been over five times i tried to contact her. >> compton's mother says she has receipts for the money orders used for the extortion payments. they're key to getting her son's request for protective custody approved. >> ms. compton? >> yes, it is. >> this is the ralph crossgood with the prison. how are you doing? >> i'm fine.
12:26 pm
>> i'm still trying to get that information concerning these guys extorting you for nick. >> right. i have all of them documents in front of me right now. >> i need them mailed in. without it, i'm not going to be able to do nothing. >> i'm a little bit leery. >> okay, well -- of what? >> not knowing what they're going to do. >> well, as soon as we get nick safe, we'll take care of it. all right. so, are these people still calling you and trying to extort you? right. and evidently, the one person got money, not only from me, but also from nick's sister, and, like, she said to me, when she found out that nick got beat up, she's like, mom, i feel like we've just paid them to kick my brother's butt. >> who'd you stend money to? >> the money order went to a person called [ muted ] -- [ muted ], and it's in
12:27 pm
[ muted ], indiana. >> okay. okay. soon as i get that information, i'll be able to run that name and see who she visited. all right? soon as i get that information i'll be able to get this done. i've been waiting for it. that's the only thing holding me up. this information that i need. okay? >> later, compton decides to take matters in his own hands and calls his mother to encourage her to not delay sending the documents. >> yeah, do you understand the importance of that, though? i get threats every day. i got threatened twice today. just today. how am i supposed to know what they're going to do? they're capable of doing anything. make sure you mail those receipts out. you told me you were doing that like last week, didn't you? >> out in the open, compton draws the attention of other inmates who believe his decision to leave the aryan brotherhood means he's a snitch. >> all right. love you. see you soon.
12:28 pm
bye. >> snitches -- snitches get killed. [ bleep ]. coming up -- >> i told them that you was ready and ready to go. street's mission here is accomplished, man. >> though still behind the walls of prison, frank street starts a new life. >> been a long time coming getting of here. and later -- >> [ bleep ]. >> threats continue to rain down on nick compton. >> you guys can't save him forever. >> save him from what? . it's like hardwiring the market right into my desktop. launch my watchlist -- a popping stock catches my eye. pull up the price chart. see what the analysts say. as i jump back, cnbc confirms what i thought. pull the trigger -- done. i can even do most of this on my smartphone. really, it's incredible. like nothing i've ever experienced.

12:34 pm
street's mission here is accomplished, man. he passed all what he needed to pass. he's ready. i guess he was already ready to go before he got up here. i've been locked up almost six years and i got way more stuff than street. >> get some shower shoes. >> this cell is kind of little. in the dorm, it is open dorm, and no cage in them, but it is a lot more room. it is a lot more room to move around. so, he can go outside whenever he want to. play a little basketball. >> not me. [ laughter ] >> it has been a long time coming getting out of here. >> street is not only going to have to adjust to a new home, but a new mentor. little t, this is is street, frank street. he is going to take good care of you, man. if you need anything, that is who you talk to. if you need me, call for me and
12:35 pm
i will come down there. >> and even though donnegon will not be street's mentor in "e" dorm, they will see each other at work. he is a prison electrician, and street is his assistant. all right. i will see you tomorrow morning in front of the control house. you take care of yourself. little "t" is going to wake you up in the morning. he is going to get you to work. >> no, i will wake him up. i say, it is time to go up. >> he wake me up at 5:00 and we have to be at work for 6:00. and so little "t" get that little pleasure of getting up an hour early from mr. street. >> as frank street begins a new life in general population, correctional officers investigate a recent stabbing in d-east, administrative segregation. >> somebody i heard got stabbed. up on 500.
12:36 pm
so they usually lock us down. we resume our regular activities after. >> since he's currently in ad-seg, steven weaver is one of the inmates on the shakedown list. >> it will give you something to do after they're gone, put everything back. it's not a pain. i'm used to it. >> this is another place to hide things. stick it up in there and they'll hide little hooks where they can pull it down. it's a broken handle from a foot food tray. they could sharpen it up, and this can become a weapon. >> might snatch the clown. they might illegally kidnap my clown. if so, i hope you put out an apb on it, and find it, res kite, and take it wherever you need to take it. >> moments later, the officers arrive in weaver's cell, and immediately the clown comes under scrutiny. >> oh, no, there is my clown. there goes my clown. they are checking him out. oh!
12:37 pm
>> scoping him out. >> what do you think? you worried about it? >> i don't keep anything in my cell. i've been doing this 20 years, man. >> if you're looking at something like that, what are you looking for? >> any kind of holes. you could feel if there's anything in there. there's nothing in there. just made out of toilet paper and painted. it's pretty sealed up. >> a short time later weaver is back in his cell. >> not bad at all. that was a pretty good one for a shakedown. no animosity there. they just come in, did their jobs and got out. >> what about the clown? >> the clown is safe. for now. he survives another day. >> after being in prison for more than 20 years, weaver's thoughts have been clouded with far more serious issues than the safety of his clown. he explained on the personal camera provided to him by our producer. >> when i first started doing my
12:38 pm
bit, the only thing i had on my mind was how many people could i kill when i got up in prison. i've kind of worked my way through that after ten years of super max and ad-seg unit. now that i'm 51 years old i'm kind of figuring out that that might not be the way to go. but i can't escape my past. when i first came up in here i stabbed a couple of guys. could have easily killed one of them. i don't know how he lived. i don't know why he lived, but he did. >> nick compton hopes to survive another day himself. >> [ bleep ] [ bleep ] snitch! >> compton claims the aryan brotherhood has extorted his family for more than $400. the sbeshl affairs officer has finally received the money order receipts he's been requesting
12:39 pm
from compton's mother. they should serve as evidence of extortion or protection money to keep compton from being assaulted again. but he thinks they mean something else. >> we got receipts for your mom. >> okay. >> ain't no $400. >> that's what she says she got. >> it comes out to about $210 or something like that. it says pay debt. it doesn't say extortion. it says debt. that is what it says to me, because it is small amounts. extortion -- i've seen extortion here. they're hundreds of dollars. >> she's got hundreds of dollars in receipts. >> inmates often find themselves in trouble when they accrue debt in prison, and that's what he thinks happened to compton. the money orders weren't for protection but for debt repayment. >> i'm going to give you one shot right now to tell me the truth. >> i am telling you the truth. >> look at me. >> dude, how is that --
12:40 pm
>> because i have seen that before. i have been here quite a bit. i have seen debt. >> i've been here since june. >> exactly. exactly, exactly. i've been here since july of '89. okay? >> my whole problem is not with me being in debt for tobacco, me being in debt because of drugs, my whole problem in here is because of the aryan brotherhood. that's my problem. >> okay. and we're getting ready to rectify that. i am going to tell you what, if i find out this is a debt, this is -- listen to me, listen to me. if i i find out that this is a -- listen to me. >> it will be taken care of. >> listen to me. listen to me. if i find out that this is a debt that you owe, we'll be talking again. >> all right. >> okay. >> though carrasco still has his suspicions, he has decided to temporarily move compton to a temporary protective custody

12:46 pm
talking to them. other than that, everything is all right. >> you seem real happy. >> i am happy. yes, thank you. >> i want to follow up with him, make sure things are going well. and i want to talk with him about what his next step is. >> franky, good to see you. haven't seen you in a while. better. better. we're going to meet up in the dorm office up there. >> yeah. >> haven't seen you in a while. >> yes. been busy. >> you are always busy. running around a lot. >> yes. >> making millions of dollars? >> millions and millions, yes. how is work going? >> yeah. i enjoy it. >> it's working well being in the dorm setting? >> yes. >> got friends over there? >> lots of them. they're very kind people over there. >> wonderful. >> so we play cards and make slams and eat pizzas. >> one of these days when i have a little courage i'll try one of those slams.
12:47 pm
i've heard a lot about them. >> street is a work in progress. >> things aren't progressing as well for nick compton. his claims that members of the aryan brotherhood are extorting his family for protection money have been discredited. >> i interviewed the people that supposedly the money order, going to, and according to what they were telling me, he was in debt. the one guy doesn't have any affiliations with no organizations whatsoever, which would rule out the extortion theory. the other one, he gave compton commissary to pay off a debt to keep him from getting hurt. some of the phone calls that we listened to kind of sounded like he was playing a game on his mom.
12:48 pm
>> how so? >> how so, by telling her about the extortion and getting her to get the money to pay for his debts. it is common. i mean, they play their family like that all of the time. and he received a conduct report for it. >> basically he's saying he interviewed the two people -- the address on the money order my mom sent up here. so when he asked him, why is nick sending you money? obviously, they're not going to say the true reason why i'm -- they're not going to tell on themselves. so the obvious reason is to say, yeah, he owed it to us for whatever reason it was. so ralph not believing what i had to say but believing them wrote me up for it instead. >> the thing about with mr. compton, this ain't the first time he's tried to pull something, not only here but at other facilities. tried to get protective custody. it's one of them things where he got caught up this time. i've got other information from other sources stating he likes to get in debt and can't pay his debt. so that's a behavioral thing.
12:49 pm
so what you do with behavioral is to discipline the behavioral, and that is what we are doing. he is still going to protective custody, because we have to do something to protect him. he is going home shortly, and it may be moved back further, because of the conduct report, but that is not my decision, but the supervisor's decision. but that's not my decision. at this point compton's case is closed. >> later with the video camera we provided him, compton expressed his feelings about the writef-up. >> talking about this. the end result on this situation right here. what's going to happen -- thrown away. thrown out. in the trash. >> the prison disciplinary board assessed compton with a loss of 60 days of good time, but

as a high-ranking member of the aryan brotherhood, stephen weaver has a reputation for
12:56 pm
being tough, but we saw another side of him soon after a visit from her girlfriend. >> she comes a couple time as year. it's like coming out of the darkness into the light for a couple of hours. after a while you come out of the darkness but the light stays with you for a little while. >> he la an appointment with the administration review board to argue his case for returning to general population. weaver has spent the last year in adsic after the prison received a tip he ordered an attack on another inmate chblgt i have a bad past and i'm an easy target for somebody who wants to manipulate internal affairs or you guys that can use my name and it's usually let go. so -- i've come to term it's with that, but i'm here to tell you guys i did not do what
12:57 pm
they're accusing me of doing. i didn't know about it until the day after it happened. >> we all, you know, the reason you're over there. >> because i'm a member of the aryan brotherhood? >> basically the reason. why you've been put over there and face it --. it's not just a member. you're a high-ranking member. you know that. >> i can't comment on anything like that. if i was like that would he still be standing out in in population? no. but he still is. i didn't put a hit out on that guy -- >> do you think stru a problem with that guy?
12:58 pm

12:59 pm
it. so he doesn't have to do anything. >> he thinks these going to have to deal with the rat. i think that's what he that he's going to try personally to take care of it himself. >> right now he needs to stay out of administrative segregation. if he comes out here he's going to have a problem. >> as weaver predicted, the board decided his role in the aryan brotherhood who make him too high a risk to return to general population. >> well, i guess that's about it. as you can see, this is no country club prison. there's nothing romantic about doing time. nothing cool about watching years go by knowing most of them wasted. the next time one of your politicians talk about how easy we have it in here, just remember what i've shown you today and what'v
